A useful history of Blandy's and the island of Madeira. You can buy wine that you can then pick up at the airport after security which is an added bonus

Interesting facts about the making of Madiera wine. Very nice tasting. Staff helpful and suggest what you may like. Samples to try before you buy. Bottles sent to secure side of airport for pick up after security. Great idea!
